ISIS is chopping off their heads yet Three US churches consider BDS measures against Israel in upcoming vote


At least three US Churches with millions of congregants amongst them are considering adopting a resolution calling for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions of "companies deemed supportive of Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories," The New York Times reported Tuesday.

By Tuesday evening, delegates from the United Church of Christ gathering at their Cleveland synod had already voted in the affirmative to adopt the resolution, and released a statement congratulating their delegation on the decision. 
The United Church of Christ Palestine-Israel Network (UCC PIN) is pleased to announce that today the plenary of the 30th General Synod taking place in Cleveland passed Resolution #4, calling for boycotts and divestment from companies that profit from Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/06/companies-profiting-occupation#sthash.dsngFWbD.dpuf

In addition, members of the Episcopal Church of Salt Lake City were expected to vote Tuesday evening as well. 

"A resolution at the Mennonites’ meeting in Kansas City, Mo. was scheduled for Wednesday" as well, The Times added.

The Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement, also known as BDS, aims to penalize Israel through economic pressure over the Palestinian issue - lobbying companies, governments and organizations to rescind financial agreements or enforce sanctions against the Jewish State.

Israel and its advocates consider BDS a pretext for anti-Semitism and an excuse to delegitimize the Jewish State.
